I decided I was going to change that this year. I didn't have to be at work until 10 on Wednesday, and I had just gotten back from an AMAZING weekend, so why not continue that celebration into the week?
If you've been around for a while, you should know that drinking holidays are some of my favorites. St. Patrick's Day? LOVE IT. Cinco de Mayo? CERVEZAS FOR EVERYONE! 4th of July? HAPPY BIRTHDAY, 'MERICA! HAVE A BREWSKI!
Because of my love for those holidays, I really have no idea why on earth I've never celebrated Mardi Gras before. So while I was in Norman last weekend, I texted a couple of my buddies to
Before I went out downtown, I went to Taco Tuesday with Shawna. WHILE I was with Shawna, I got some exciting news about Mr. Attractive from banker class. But that story is still to come. I'm making y'all wait another post!
It was SO. MUCH. FUN. I met up with John and his friend Chase, and we went to a couple different bars in downtown. We started hanging out around 8:30 or so. We slowly made our way from downtown to just East of downtown to a place called Mercury Lounge. AWESOME drink specials there, by the way.
While at Mercury, I ran into two of my cousins. One of them and I used to hang out a lot when we were kids, so it was kind of fun to hang out with her again. I said goodbye to John, Chase, and Patti around 1 a.m., and in doing so I definitely stayed out wayyyyyy too late. Lucky for me I slept pretty good for having stayed out so late.
It was such a fun night and I can't wait until I get to celebrate Fat Tuesday with Katy next year!
